Commemorating Juneteenth through action and education

Written by Team Nextdoor

B@ND, Black (employees) at Nextdoor, is thrilled to wish everyone a happy Pride Month and start the countdown toward Juneteenth! Both events hold particular significance, as they offer opportunities to reflect on the progress made towards equality and honor the contributions of Black LGBTQ+ folks throughout history.

It’s important to remember that Pride Month and Juneteenth aren’t just about celebration. They’re also about action. We not only want to continue to raise awareness and advocate for Black and LGBTQ+ issues, but also recognize the intersection of racism and homophobia/transphobia.

So as we commemorate Pride Month and prepare for Juneteenth, let’s celebrate the work that’s been done and acknowledge the work still ahead of us.

Here are a few ways you can honor both Pride Month and Juneteenth:
